In the manga
In [[PASM19]], Gladion appeared at Po Town, where he found Guzma using three Ultra Beasts to attack the [[Trial Captain]]s and Hau. Gladion demanded that Guzma reveal who gave him the beasts as well as the {{p|Cosmog}} he used to open an [[Ultra Wormhole]]. Guzma, annoyed at the accusation that someone is controlling him, sent out his {{p|Golisopod}} to attack, but Gladion managed to dodge it. When Guzma asked to know why Gladion agreed to join Team Skull, he revealed that his true goal is to destroy the Ultra Beasts.
 
Gladion had Type: Null battle the beasts Guzma summoned, and due to its nature as a Pokémon specifically designed to fight Ultra Beasts, Type: Null was able to inflict more damage on the beasts when the Captains' Pokémon were barely able to make a scratch. Gladion revealed to everyone that Type: Null was created by the [[Aether Foundation]] and that [[Lusamine]], the Aether Foundation's president, is just using Guzma to fuel her desire to create a paradise for herself and the Ultra Beasts she loves so much. Guzma rejected Gladion's accusation, but was captured by a {{p|Nihilego}} before he can finish talking. Moon tried to rescue Guzma, but was stopped by a {{p|Xurkitree}}, allowing Nihilego to drag Guzma into an Ultra Wormhole. Afterward, the other Ultra Beasts escaped from Po Town's barrier, allowing them to wreak havoc on the rest of [[Ula'ula Island]]. When the Captains asked Gladion what they can do to help, he refused to answer due to them claiming that his statements on Lusamine's motives were just lies. He then states that they wouldn't be able to fight the beasts regardless and rides off on Type: Null.

Later, Gladion, [[Professor Kukui]], [[Molayne]], [[Sophocles]], and [[Acerola]] fought off a {{p|Celesteela}} and {{p|Guzzlord}} at {{rt|10|Alola}} to prevent them from reaching [[Hokulani Observatory]], which was being used as a shelter for those caught up in the Ultra Beasts' rampage. While Type: Null easily defeated Celesteela, Gladion was momentarily distracted when [[Lillie]] appeared and called out to him. Taking the opportunity, Guzzlord leapt in to attack Lillie, only to be easily swatted away by Type: Null, who evolved into a {{p|Silvally}} while doing so. Lillie revealed that three months ago, she stole [[Nebby]] and ran away from [[Aether Paradise]] after Lusamine tried to use Nebby's power for her own goals. When Lillie revealed she also stole a [[Sun Flute]] from Lusamine, Gladion decided that they should head towards the Altar.
 
While Gladion, Moon, Anabel, and Hapu fought off the beasts, Sun chose to confront Faba about returning the island the Aether Foundation took from his [[Sun's great-grandfather|great-grandfather]]. During the conversation, Faba revealed the island was given to Sun's great-grandfather from a member of the Foundation. When Gladion and Lillie heard this, they had an idea who it could be, but were interrupted by a larger than usual Ultra Wormhole appearing with a {{p|Necrozma|hand}} emerging from it. The hand took control of Solgaleo's body. The possessed Solgaleo grabbed Sun with its tail and jumped into the wormhole. Nebby, with Moon still on its head, activated its third eye and flew into the wormhole.
 
Six months after the Poni Island incident, Lusamine disappeared while Faba had managed to take control of the Aether Foundation, running it like a dictatorship. At the [[Aether House]] on Ula'ula Island, [[Wicke]] told Gladion and Lillie that Lusamine was found on Poni Island playing with a group of Ultra Beasts. Gladion suggested going to get Lusamine, but was told to stay behind as he hadn't fully recovered from the injuries he sustained from being exposed to the energy from Silvally's evolution. Wicke decided the best option was for her to return to Aether Paradise and gather information before making their next move.
